As we close out the year in this month of frigid temperatures and deep snow across much of the country, I worry about those without homes and heat. The United Way is the backbone behind so many initiatives to improve the education, financial stability, and health of the people in communities across America. I dream of a country in which everyone has an education, a stable job, and a warm home.
Plaid jackets, plaid leggings, today it's plaid shirts. Will the madness end? I'll get help.
...what do you think of plaid leggings? How 'bout with a black or gray tunic?
I woke up this morning mad for plaid! I'll be looking for plaid outerwear this spring.
Are you mad too? Which jacket do you like best?
This year I thought I'd try to shake things up by pairing red with red if I could find a red that wouldn't clash too horribly with my skirt.
Here's what I came up with:
It's not perfect, but it does mix things up a bit, and I like all the red.
I also always wear my festive black coat with the bright gold buttons!
What's your Christmas "uniform"?
Here's wishing you a bright and merry holiday!! :-))
Shhhh. Someone in our household who loves bacon is soon to receive the gift of this tee. Do you like bacon or are you wrong?
I was so excited to find this line of soft, gray, felty bags at Hobby Lobby yesterday! Looks and feels like boiled wool or flannel but it's actually made of 100% post-consumer recycled fibers. Great last minute gift (but I'm keeping mine for me!).
This stylish clutch only costs less than $3 (in store or online) if you print off the 40% off one item coupon here. Many styles available online with $1.95 shipping.
In the cart. Out of the cart. I've been nearly buying the top two tunics below since the Boden sale began.
Tunics are great! So much more interesting, I think, than just a top.
Wear them alone with tights. Wear them with cords, jeans, skinnies or wide-legs; boots, oxfords, flats, or heels.
Boden carries some of the cutest tunics around. I'm hoping these ones will get marked down just a drop more.
Here's what I wore to jury duty yesterday:
I had lunch with a friend downtown, and she said, "They're sure to pick you for the jury--you look so put together!"
What will I wear to jury duty today? Alas, I don't have to worry about it because I got released...which is ok too :-)
What's your judgement on orange with black or gray? Think it works? Or too Halloweeny?
Any other fresh color combinations we should try?
"This anger, jealousy, hate, whatever it is, locally and globally... why must we be cruel to another?"
For today's T-shirt Sunday, we give a shout out to Whitley Hamlin, the blogger of the Queen City Style.
With so much controversy spurred by the shooting in Connecticut, Whitley's words and her t-shirt rise above the din.
Here's Whitley in her Asos 'All You Need' organic cotton t-shirt. Click on her photo to reach her blog post from Friday.
Here's the link to Whitley's t-shirt. In the aftermath of Friday's tragedy, let's remember above all else to love each other.
